I’m a song-oriented drummer with flair when it counts – plus I sing harmony and can perform extreme metal vocals. With more than 15 years’ experience playing rock, pop, funk and heavy music, I can handle most musical situations. I’ve played everything from double kick-heavy metal to 80s rock covers, rockabilly punk and delicate acoustic pop.
I live for performing onstage and am a consummate arranger. My best assets are being a fast learner, a great listener and a relentless workhorse. My flexible attitude to music means I pay attention to the details and have excellent feel and tempo – and I consider myself easy to get along with. It’s these qualities that have earned me every job and band role I’ve had.
Musically, I create a big, full sound and am adept at creating the perfect part for a song – whether it’s with hitting hard with sticks, providing subtle beats with rods, creating atmosphere with brushes or using electronics.
I’m equally at home with or without a click or loops. I record using Logic Pro X and am highly adept at creating programmed drum parts if that’s what your project requires.
Making music feel good is my number one goal – I’m adaptable, excited about new challenges –and love nothing more than making a band or musician happy.
